Service Seeker/Provider Matching Website
We are seeking a savvy developer(s) to build the foundational components for our website. The site will match businesses, non-profits and other institutions seeking specific services with professionals who are highly qualified and eager to provide those niche services. From a technical standpoint, the site will function similarly to other sites that pair service providers with service seekers, such as [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] but catering to a completely different market and with different features.
The service providers will have profiles specifying their qualifications and the request submitters will also have basic user profiles. The request submitters will be able to post jobs and find service providers that match their needs. We have designed non-functioning prototype (think mockups that linked to eachother), which along with a requirements document will provide you with clear tasks.
There are several other modules/features we have in mind. To start, we are seeking a developer to build the foundational components. If it is a good fit, it could lead to a partnership as we further develop the site.
What are we looking for?
1. Must have worked on a website of similar complexity
2. Matching algorithm experience (if not, willing to consider the right candidate)
3. Client references and portfolio of past websites
4. Agile development (we are looking for initial deliverables in the first 2 – 3 weeks, not a code dump at the end of several months)
5. Re-use of existing script is okay as long as you can demo it for us, it can be customized to our specs and there are no IP constraints. All source code, scripts and software rights will be transferred to us at the conclusion of this project.
We have used outsourcing before. If we fit and agree on terms then we continue on the project. We may or may not have other programmer(s)/developer(s)/coder(s) in-house therefore we may have the right candidate work in teams so please be realistic and straightforward about what you can do
PHASE I :
Standard opening page with links to register, log-in, submit a request, etc. We are not looking for a designer, but rather a developer to code our mock-up designs.
2. Service Provider and Request Submitter User Profiles
We need a user sign-up form that collects all the information needed to populate the service provider profile (this will be further divided into two service provider profiles sections). We need another user sign-up form that collects all the information needed to populate the request submitter profile. We then need profile display templates for both user types. Some information will be public while others the user will have the option whether to display. The user information needs to be stored (probably on an IaaS solution initially) and quickly retrieved.
Service provider user profile should have online status, optional online calendar capacity and area to store their pending and final work and messages
Submitter user can profile should have area to store pending and final work
3. Post a Request
We need a request submission form and a request display template. Requests can be submitted to:
Select group of service providers only,
Selected matches only or
Open to the entire site users for bidding.
Automated to be sent outside our platform (this can be part of phase I or phase II)
4. Submit a Bid
The site will capture bids submitted by service providers and display them to the requestor.
5. Message chat mini-platform
This is just a standard simple message exchange platform
6. Matching Tool (this can be part of phase I or phase II)
Based on the request criteria and the user profiles, we need an algorithm that will select and display the best-suited service providers for that request. The algorithm should: See attached for full job description
Phase II - See attached
Phase III - See attached
Please send DETAILED proposals to PHASE I only
